    Nobody around here seems to think Bose is a good value, so you may want to seriously research them on the web before buying.
    otherwise, I think its an error to buy based entirely on brand. Most every brand has good models, and not so good models. Buy a bad model of an otherwise good brand will be of little comfort. Determine a price range or better yet a requirements or needs list, and shop based on that.

    Cheers.

    Thank you much.

    I haven't heard too much good news about Bose either....

    I swear by Yamaha receivers, I've always had one (except for an unfortunate Sony brain-cramp a dozen years ago..)

    HT is complicated, but the more your interest grows, the more you'll learn. Especially lurking around here, reading magazines, checking out stores all the time, stuff like that.

    Have fun with it! Deciding what to buy is the best part!

    Most people mix & match brands too. An all yamaha/sony/pioneer/marantz/denon system are rare (maybe only exist as showrooms ? [​IMG] ). The average person will use seperate brands for loudspeakers, subwoofer, player, monitor (or projector), reciever, and amps.

    Just throw a wrench in your equation, I love my Onkyo products, ie Receiver. If your looking for a good entry level receiver with room to grow, take a look at Onkyo.
